Farberware Classic Stainless SteelFarberware's eight-quart stockpot features a heat conductive stainless steel and aluminum disc base which makes this soup and stew pot as energy efficient as any of Farberware's well-known saute pans. With the special layered base and heavy 18/10 stainless steel walls, the stockpot cooks evenly without need for higher burner settings.

The phenolic handles do get hot after extended cooking times, so have hotpads handy. Since the pot is oven safe to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, it's possible to use this pot for baking, but you will be riding the edge pretty closely for most recipes. Temperatures over 350 will damage the handles. The limited lifetime warranty does not cover damage from incorrect use.

For stovetop use, this is an excellent pot. The heavy base and stainless interior make the pot nearly non-stick if used at proper temperatures. Even though eight quarts of stew is heavy, the pot is built strongly enough to lift without distortion, and the handle system is solid. The lid is equally well built and fits tightly.

Heat will change the color of the pot after use, and the initial polish may be dulled if the pot is run through a dishwasher or cleaned by hand with abrasives.
